The Xbox One isn't too far away, but according to Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing and strategy for Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business, the Xbox One is in full production.

Before going into full production, the next-gen console received a boost in its CPU clock speed - increasing 150MHz from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz. Mehdi announced the news at the Citi Global Technology Conference, giving a quick update on the Xbox One's progress and manufacturing. He also added: "We're on track for launch in November," you'd kind of hope so, considering it's September already.

 

He also said: "We'll announce a launch date shortly. We recently just went into full production, so we're now producing en masse Xbox One consoles. We've had real good progress on the system. In fact, we just updated the CPU performance to 1.75 GHz on top of the graphics performance improvement, so the system is really going to shine [and] the games look pretty incredible."

 

This is the second tweak Microsoft has done to the Xbox One, where we saw an increase in the Xbox One's GPU clock speed in August from 800MHz to 853MHz.
